The Caribbean is full of wonderful destinations and extremely fun parks/activities. There is a wide variety of sinkholes, ancient ruins, and nature or adventure parks. NATURE PARKS should have to do with being eco-friendly, sustainable, and other aspects related to caring for planet Earth, right? Well, over the past years this term has become very unclear and flexible, so most parks don’t actually qualify to be a REAL Nature Park. That is where Selvatica comes in, being the only 100% Natural Park in Cancun.
Guilt-Free Natural Park
Usually, when talking about guilt-free anything, the most common topics revol ve around: guilt-free snacks, guilt-free brands that support minorities and good causes, etc.
Selvatica supports charities through amazing programs like the Helping Hands program, that contributes to society by giving hope to the lives of the impoverished youth, or the Seed of Life program that we’ll mention in a bit.
However, there is another kind of guilt-free that not everyone is talking about, although they should: Guilt-Free Natural Parks. “But HOW can a natural park be guilt-free?” Here is how:
Mindless fun is not fun.
When thinking about spending your money and time on an amusement park or an adventure park, you go with a “live in the moment” mindset, right? What would you think if I told you that the fun you are having is actually going to bite you back later on? You’d probably say I’m crazy, but hang in there, I will explain it all to you.
As I said above, mindless fun is NOT FUN. And by mindless fun, I mean many things such as not caring about safety or not following instructions, to not knowing about the place you are visiting and what their values are. Know that I wasn’t born knowing this, and I don’t expect you to have been either, but in this technology era, we tend to forget how easy educating ourselves on ANY topic can be!
I know that the last thing that ever crosses your mind before visiting your vacation destination is “Oh, let me search for the company’s values or if what they claim is more than just words”. I get it. But it is soooo easy, that in just one click you can get hundreds of thousands of pages with articles like this one, that can open your eyes.
Not everything is what it seems
The term Natural Park has become blurry and unclear, many claims being authentic whilst knowing that it is not entirely true. Selvatica wants to be transparent with its clients, and we back up our words with the ONLY important thing here: actions!
For starters, when you come to visit us, the atmosphere is pretty obvious and hard to not feel drawn to. You can hear the animals and critters as you drive on our pathway through Puerto Morelos’ jungle, and you might even spot some cool exotic animals!
Selvatica has strived for excellence from day one and promised to take care of our planet Earth, trying to preserve all of its beauty. We don’t expect you to believe that the road you drive on was there when we started building, but you will see for yourself how our forest is almost 100% virgin.
We achieved the latter by carefully planning our building so that the least amount of trees are torn down, AND we have the Seed of Life Program. The Seed of Life program has planted over 300,000 trees!
Be mindful, and choose right. The planet and its people’s wellbeing are in our hands.
Selvatica can be found in the heart of the jungle half way between Playa del Carmen and Cancun, close to Puerto Morelos.
When coming to the Caribbean it’s easy to become mesmerized by the pristine powdery white sands, and impressive hotels that dominate the coastlines but there’s an understated side of paradise that often goes unnoticed.
We believe the jungle deserves your attention!
Its lush setting provides the perfect backdrop for the ultimate outdoor adventure. You won’t find anything like this anywhere else.

After all the excitement and adrenaline of whizzing through the hot Mexican jungle what better way to cap off the day than to cool off in a refreshing fresh water cenote.
In case you didn’t know cenotes are a stunning natural phenomenon unique to this area of the world. Once considered by the ancient Maya to be the portals to the netherworld these freshwater swimming areas should be on everyone’s bucket list.

5. Selvatica’s Social Commitment
Selvatica cares deeply about two things:
The Seed of Life Program
As we already know Planet Earth is in trouble.
As deforestation increases, so to do our carbon footprints.
. Selvatica relies on the jungle to provide the ultimate outdoor experience! That’s why as a debt of honor they are dedicated to giving something back and creating a sustainable infrastructure.
You can join them in their efforts to shrink the carbon footprint!
The Seed of Life Program at Selvatica has so far planted over 300,000 trees with that number rising every single day.
These trees absorb over 7.8 millions of tons of CO2 every year! Pretty impressive, right?
On Selvatica’s new Beyond tour you will be able to plant a seed which, in turn, will help our planet breathe easier in many years to come.
The Helping Hands Program
Selvatica takes a hands-on approach when it comes to helping better the lives of impoverished youths. This program helps provide sporting equipment/leagues and technical training to more than 100 former juvenile gang members.
With your help, Selvatica can rehabilitate these troubled youths and pave a new and positive path for them to follow.
So, there you have it. Now you see why Selvatica is the King of Cancun Ziplines!
Help Save the Planet with Selvatica Seed Of Life Program
Our planet is in environmental trouble. But it wasnt always like this.So the questions become, how did this happen? Is there something we can do about it?
Lets give you a very brief history of how our planets sustainability became threatened.
It’s actually very simple and straightforward. In 1800 we had only one billion people on the planet.At that time, the Earth was able to regenerate its biosphere quicker than we, as one billion people, were able to extract its natural resources.
But then, we invented a revolution that would help us extract more resources than ever before.
Enter: The Industrial Revolution.
Our productivity skyrocketed after the industrial revolution. People moved from the country to for what we now call a modern city. More people, in a denser space, led to a population increase.
By 1920 our population had doubled, from one billion to two billion. Think about that. It took us ALL of humanity to reach one billion. And then, boom. Just like that, in a blink of an eye, historically speaking, we doubled. Did the earths resources double? Obviously not.
But things are just getting started. From 1920 to 1960, our population grew by ANOTHER billion. First billion took our entire existence. The second billion spanned 120 years. Third billion took just 40 years. Again, did the Earths resources grow at the same rate? Sadly, not.
The fourth billion happened only 30 years later in 1970. The fifth billion in 1980. The sixth billion in the year 2000. Today we stand at the precipice of 7 billion people on the planet.
To recap, in 220 years our population has grown by 600%, while our planets resources have sharply declined.
Think about it this way. Imagine you are hungry and decide to order some pizza. You, being alone, order a personal pan pizza. It arrives and it is enough to satisfy your hunger. Then, the next day, six of your friends show up. All of a sudden, that pizza that was enough for one person, is far from enough for all seven of you.
So whats the solution? Well, the solution is as simple and straightforward as the problem. If you can, bake more pizza right?
How do we apply that logic to planet earth? It’s easy. We need to curb deforestation by planting more trees. If we are part of the problem, we can become part of the solution.
People tend to dismiss the dangers of deforestation as hippy nonsense. What harm would a few chopped down trees actually do to the planet, those critics argue.
Actually, it’s more than a few.The real number is closer to 18 million acres of forest per year.Thats one and a half acres every SECOND! Put it another way, thats 20 football fields every minute. However way you break it down, it’s staggering and alarming.
I can hear critics saying so what? Theyre just trees!?.
Still not convinced? How about this: 121 natural remedies which are then converted into modern medicine can be found in forestsand this number is increasing every year.What if the cure for cancer is out there somewhere, and we end up chopping it down to extinction before we even discover its therapeutic properties?
And the last, and perhaps most important reason to help fight against deforestation is climate change.It doesnt matter which side of the debate you fall in.Whether you think climate change happened naturally or was caused by human activitythe undeniable, irrefutable truth is, more trees help reduce the effects of climate change.
Trees give us cleaner oxygen to breathe.They provide shelter for thousands of species.They provide us with life-saving medicine.
Just dont forget. The solution is as simple as the problem. If we are cutting too many trees for the earth to regenerate naturally, we have to help plant trees.But who will lead the battle?
Do not despair.
Selvatica, the number one outdoor adventure park in Latin America is leading the charge.Selvatica has a social commitment program called Seed Of Life.It’s simple.We put a tree seed in an expired Selvatica helmet.Then we plant that helmet into the ground and let nature take care of the rest.
What started out as a simple project has ballooned into a major movement.Today, Selvaticas seed of life tree-planting program has planted over 300,000 oxygen-releasing trees! That has shrunk the carbon footprint by an eye-popping 7.8 million tons!
You see its all about the circle of life.First, our helmet protects our most precious resource, our brain.Then, after the helmet expires, it helps protect Mother Natures most precious resource, our forests.
We want to show our travelers that, if we team up together, we can help save the planet. Join the Selvatica tribe.Help us fight the good fight. Our planet is in danger and needs our help.
